Tom Turner is a con man, defrauding people from their money with a variety of two-bit hustles. One night he makes the mistake of attempting to hustle some undercover cops, and finds himself in court faced with the dilemma of either going to jail or getting a real job. Choosing to stay out of jail, he gets a job at the post office working in their Dead Letter Office helping to sort Dead Letters (i.e. mail which, for whatever reason, can't be delivered). Some of the mail he recieves can't be delivered because it's addressed to God, and he accidentally answers (sending them money in the process). This starts the ball rolling as more of his co-workers get in on the idea of helping people by answering "God" mail. Written by

I wish there was a rating between "Liked it" and "Didn't Like It". Because although I didn't DISlike this movie, I can't actually say I LIKED it either. Very lame and weak in a lot of places - Tim Conway gives a GREAT performance as the burned out postal worker. The other performances are just adequate, and that's being kind. I am big fan of Laurie Metcalfe, but this is not a shining moment for her. Ellen Cleghorn's attempt at an accent fails miserably, and Greg Kinnear is not believable as a bad guy. The premise of the story is cute.....but the story sputters to it's predictable ending...and takes too long to get there.
